The Saline County RSWMD and an Executive YEA! Team have been working hard to implement new Green Team programs throughout each of the Saline County School Districts. The Green Teams are now going to be called the YEA! Teams (Youth Environmental Ambassadors). Through this new program there will be requirements for each campus leader to implement with their YEA teams. The grades are broken down into the requirements for what will be expected from each level for participation:
K-5 will focus on education and awareness of "being green". Lead by Mrs. LaSage and Mrs. Mackey
6-8 will focus on advanced education and awareness, but also begin participating in community service.
Lead by Mrs. Mackey
9-12 will focus primarily on community service with the opportunity for scholarships (see scholarships in the drop down menu). Lead by Mrs. Mackey
All GT students in grades 3-6 are automatically considered to be a YEA!. We will include this as part of our program and will begin the year competing in the fall recycled art contest. Soon after, we will start designing fashions for the spring "Re-fashion Bash" (opened to all). (It will take a while to collect the many recycled items needed to complete some of the designs.
Other students wishing to be a YEA will need to speak to their campus leader. ALL Bauxite students are eligible to participate in the recycled art contest and the re-fashion bash contests.
